"Lovely place but TOOO HOT!"
The only problem with this hotel is no Air Conditioning. This is a major problem! It was so hot in the bedrooms it was difficult to sleep even though the windows opened. Also the excursions were good but the problem was that the coach left too early to come back and there was no choice to get a later coach. For example excursion to the water park we […] got the 9am coach there but had to come back at 4pm even though the park didn't close until 6pm! This was rather annoying as it was expensive to get into the park and we would like to make the most of the time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The only good thing about this hotel was its location. That alone wouldn’t be enough for me to book this again though. Rooms are way to small and not what specified. No air-conditioning either. Clothing go stolen out of my room and was not replaced. They refused to accept breakfast was included in the price, even though it was. Worst of all the staff […] are so unhelpful and extremely slow at doing anything. I was waiting 1 hour in the queue to check in, even though there were only 4 people in front of me. If you had any questions for reception following that, good luck, you’ll be waiting another hour. I would absolutely not recommend this hotel to anyone ever. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely complex in perfect location"
Just back from 2 week family holiday in CPO - great location right beside Oura beach. Our apartment had fabulous sea view with a large balcony and was very quiet. The complex is in an ideal location, grounds are very attractive and well maintained. Our 2 bed apartment was spacious and cleaning service was very good with fresh towels every day. Lovely […] restaurants in immediate vicinity along by the beach and within walking distance of the strip if you want something livelier! Choice of water activities on the beach - paragliding, banana boats, pedal boats etc. Only negative is lack of Air Conditioning in apartments but good fans provided. Also, usual problem with guests putting towels on sun loungers by the pool early in the morning - but we prefered the beach anyway. Will definitely go back to CPO.

"Old and worn"
The complex is very large and due to the location of our apartment we had a long walk to get off site. The complex is not suitable for persons with mobility problems as there are steps everywhere and although there are very many rooms ours would have been inaccessible without climbing stairs. As there is no air conditioning in the rooms and we had some […] very warm weather where it would have been very much appreciated. Because of the way the apartments are designed with the only access through the patio doors there is little opportunity to ventilate the apartment at night and some were sleeping with the doors left open to anyone something I could not do. We bought trips through the hotel but then found we had to walk varying distances to bus stops to pick up the coaches. Usually trips are picked up and dropped off at the hotel where you book this is not the case here but we were not told till after we had bought and paid for the trips. There is currently building work going on and you have to walk in the road watching out for the traffic when going to the temporary reception or shop. There were advertised facilities which were not available either.The cleaning staff are very good and efficient but still cleaning an old complex. We liked Albufiera but not this complex.

lots of building work going on, lots of drunken shouting and cavorting in the pool after midnight 6 nights out of 7, unfriendly staff. This should be a great and would be if hotel if properly run.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cheap and cheerful!"
My husband and I stayed in a Studio room at Clube Praia da Oura in May. We had very cheap rates and therefore were happy with our accommodation. The studio room was tiny with a couch that converts into a bed. The facilities at the hotel were very good. However, I would not recommend the area of Praia da Oura. The beach area is quite nice, however the […] streets just inland from the hotel are full of rowdy clubs and pubs. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Despite the fact that the reception and surroundings of the swimming pool were still under construction, and given we asked for a double - and got two singles - we absolutely loved this hotel. Staff are friendly, rooms are awesome, the views were amazing - and the neighbourhood is fun. There are a few stags/hens groups that dominate the streets, but […] if you get into the fun it's a whole heap of laughs. Had an awesome time. Will definitely return...... ps - thanks for the hot weather too :-) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location but too many steps"
Great, but too many steps for ease of moving luggage. Not enough wardrobes, none in second bedroom! Location wonderful and great variety of amenities. We realise you are refurbishing but our apartment was a bit jaded.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"recent holiday to portugal"
The staff was very helpful and friendly. Our room was excellent with every possible item need for self catering. Very close to the shops and the beautiful beach. Would recommend to any of my friends plus a few of my friends had already stayed in this complex and had recommend it to me.Genuine Expedia guest review
Fantastic time and wonderful view of Atlantic Ocean from our room. Would go back as it is also convenient to take side tours to Spain. Great vacation as Roopm comfortable and clean. Close to everything one would want!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Massive complex, good value, not much else"
Good location for Oura Beach. Half mile walk to the Strip (mostly uphill) Bed and pillows uncomfortable, poor balcony in our room, but others looked much better. Exceptional value and overall good service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Warm and homey away from home"
The hotel was amazing and the staff was really polite and helpful.The room was tidy and clean and we had a complimentary bottle of wine as an apology for the construction works around the hotel.For this reason we were unable to use the swimming pool but the staff told us we can use the one in the nearest hotel,which was great.Overall,no complaint whatsoever […] and we're definitely coming back next year,big Thank you!

"good, well-run hotel"
Generally a well run hotel, good beach-side location and a good stay. The main variable is location of room - we were unfortunate to have a north-facing, roadside room, so no sun on the balcony at any time of day and some disturbance with noisy neighbours and guests coming back late at night, plus constant background traffic. Still had a good time […] though! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Clube Praia Da Oura"
Very conveniently located.Older hotel but ongoing maintenance and cleaning keep it acceptable.Grounds are lovely and well groomed.Direct beach access is a great positive asset to this hotel.The staff is polite and helpful. The ongoing activities are a plus for families /or those who wish to take part.(we didn't)One thing, the property is spread out […] with elevations and steps,so even getting to your room requires one to be physically able.This is not for those with mobility probs.All in all ,we found the accomodation fit our needs and was very fairly priced.

"Clube Praia Da Oura New year 2011/12"
The hotel is very well located next to the sea but you need to be careful as there is a backside to the hotel with little or no view as well as one block that is completely seperate from the main part. Best bits to ask for are overlooking the pool or the sea. Hotel is undergoing a lot of refurbishment and alterations at present. Staff were very pleasant […] but servicing of the rooms was ad-hoc at best. Done very well but chaotic, having no towel changes etc for a period of 4 days then changed two days on the run??? Beware that the studio rooms have two single beds, one folds under the other for storage and is difficult to put up and take down if you are not able bodied. Studios are functional but a little cramped in terms of storage, cooking is an experience as well as there are two electric rings and a microwave/grill. Nevertheless, very clean and a superb holiday. Beware that Petchey leisure who own the hotel are into Timeshare in a big way and have their own points based "Infiniti" programme which they do approach people about. It may suit your needs, it did not suit ours and that is very much thanks to the likes of Expedia who give us such good deals. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Room photos gave impression that all apartments had separate bedrom, not so,put up beds in lounge area so abit cramped.room very clean and all utensils supplied.Internet was not FREE as claimed by expediaGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great value and location"
Wasn't sure about it at first as it is a huge timeshare complex. DIdn't need to worry though, the appartment was superb, the staff friendly and helpful, the location excellent and the value for money, unbelievable. We had breakfast in our deal, but probably wouldn't bother next time, as the appartment has a well equipped kitchen, and the breakfast, […] although plentiful, got a little bit 'samey'. There is entertainment most nights, a good happy hour when a large beer is only just over a quid, and free wifi in the lobby. We shall certainly be returning at some point. Highly recommended!

Stayed in this hotel 3 nights 25th to 27th Nov can only say what a wonderfull room and hotel. We went for basic room with no breakfast and every thing was perfect cleanliness very good. Hotel had plenty going on every night and easy to walk to the strip for dinner. The old town was a 30 minute walk or you could catch the train one way and walk the other.

"Great location, spotlessly clean, and very helpful"
Stayed at the Clube Praia da Oura for 2 nights in September 2011 (Friday and Saturday) and I thought the place was brilliant. Apartments are laid out in a quirky way and are sometimes diffcult to find after checking in, but they are all well equipped, very clean and great value for money. Asked the staff a few things like helping to store bags before […] we could get into our rooms, about a late checkout, and extra keys for the rooms, and each time they were friendly and only too happy to help. For me the service was excellent. The lovely Oura Beach is only a short 2 minute walk down a quiet street and its 2 minutes to the main happening part of Albufeira 'The Strip'. One night we walked to the old town in around 25 mins and had a great meal at one of the great al fresco seafood restaurants. All in all a very pleasant stay, and I would recommend staying at the Clube Praia da Oura to anyone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
HOTEL IS LOCATED BY A BEACH. I AM HAPPY THAT I HAVE BOOKED A ROOM WITH A SEA VIEW. THERE ARE ABOUT 1300 ROOMS, SO SOME OF THEM ARE LOCATED A LONG WAY OFF BUT NOT OUR. BEAUTIFULL SORROUNDINGS - A LOT PLANTS, GRASS CUT SHORTLY, HIGH STANDARD. I AM ENJOYED STAY THERE.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clube Praia Da Oura - Great location"
My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend, we booked it last minute, lovely well equiped room, lovely surroundings, 2 min walk to the beach, very relaxed, lots to do, no need to go off sight, great shop and a short walk to more restaurants and pubs if wanted - would definetly go back !!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clube Praia da Oura in Albufeira"
The hotel is in a rather touristy area, Albufeira, which we didn't realise until we got there- lots of restaurants catering for 'Brits on holiday' and we had to hunt hard for traditional Portuguese food. Recommend a restaurant called Neto which doesn't look much from the outside but the food is excellent, especially the traditional piri piri chicken. […] We were pleased with the hotel on the whole, which was surprisingly quiet at night, but a short walk to the restaurants. One thing that annoyed us though was the pool bar playing loud music from about 11 am til 6, bit annoying when you want to relax and read your book. The beach is a short walk away, which was always packed full of tourists. The hotel organises some great, very cheap excursions to more scenic and quiet areas, where you can learn about the history of the towns. I recommend the 'algarve landscapes' where we saw some amazing scenery, and had a wine tasting tour. This hotel is great if you like to have all the British comforts, and lots of English speakers, and if you are a family and want to keep the kids entertained- there is organised entertainment every day and plenty for them to do. However I wouldn't recommend it if you are looking for a quiet getaway! For value though, it's excellent. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My boyfriend and I stayed in this hotel June 2011 and we were truly surprised! I had booked this holiday without really paying much attention to the hotel however it was a pleasant shock to see that the hotel chosen was just amazing. Better than all others around the area. Its right at the bottom of the strip so quite quiet although a short walk to […] many restaurants and bars. Will stay again! Great pool and great value for money literally on the beautiful beach. Has own sunbeds on individual balcony's and plenty to do. (However would advise against eating on any of the restaurants on the beach front.. definitely not worth the money. But 2 great restaurants are Paulas and Wild & co which are both extremely close) We had an amazing time! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We unfortunately did not realise it was the timeshare side and not the hotel -but anyway-The 2 rooms we had were totally different from one another -one you could not swing a kitten in(kitten being smaller)and the other a wasted space.We were together as a family all 4 but at other ends of the complex so we had conversations via the internal telephone!! […] Down by the seaside was excellent ,but being right at the back of the complex it was along trek to it.The pool seating was sardinified so did not bother and stayed at the room watcjhing people watching us as they walked past right outside! The complex was a little tired and still harks back to the 90,s(early 90,s) but I am sure the owners who have them are happy with what they have.Unfortunately we had stayed 2 weeks in a more modern complex and it may have tainted what we saw.

The supermarket was so close which was v.good aswell.The only problem i had was the bathroom-the mains were stinking+bathroom was just not nice.The sunlounges were to close together.A man in the main rest at the resort we went to one night didnt make us feel welcome-he said that last orders were 9.45 which we were […] there at that time+closing hours were 10.00,it was fine but nothing outstanding. There is a rest on the beach called vinadline(something like that) which is so nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Very nice apart hotel in great location.We travelled with our 2 year old and there was enough around to occupy her and us. Some lovely places to eat very close by.

Just back from a week in the Clube Praia Da Oura. Once again we had a lovely time as this is our third year to go. Will be back again at the end of the year an hopfully next year. The only little fault was that we had always got a two bedroomed apt around the pool area as my Mother always travled with us. This year she had to opt out as she was unwell […] at the last minute and the apt that we had we would not have been able to leave her on her own the odd time as we were located down by the beach which was nice but the apt had no view and we were to the side of the bulding. I had requested an apt around were we normally stayed but of course nothing is guaranted a little disapointed but we still have a great time.Well done to all. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Club Paia Da Oura"
The hotel is right on the beach and our room had a beautiful view of the ocean. It was very clean upon arrival and had everything we needed for the week. The bed was a little too hard for our liking however our other guests were comfortable with theirs. (We had a 2 bedroom apartment). The location is excellent, walking distance to the strip, and if […] you like walking (which we do), to Oldtown. Parking can be challenging, as it is on the road, whereever you can find a spot. It is definitely a quality 3 star hotel, with a 5 star location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The hotel was lovely and clean, rooms very generous, bathroom very nice, shower was amazing. We were only there 5 nights but would've loved to have stayed longer. Staff all very helpful. Great restaurants nearby, altho we found the 'strip' to be a little tacky, rather like Blackpool in the sun, we had no trouble finding good places to eat. All facilities […] very clean.

Just returning from CPO, we had such amazing time. Hotel has good facilities with great surroundings, walking disance to the strip and from the strip, you can get a wee blue train to three different desinations including the old town. We would recommend the hotel to anyone, staff very friendly, we got the sofa-bedsit which was a lovely - there was […] two pillows - so one for each of us and I asked the cleaner could we have another pillow and on our return that evening, another pillow was awaiting us. Recommend if you would like to worship the sun/pool to get in early with your towel to a sunbed as you could be dissappointed. I have to say, I would return to the hotel and actually thinking about next year already. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
